2013 Upward Flag Football/Cheerleading
We are very sorry to announce that the 2013 season of Upward Flag Football and Cheerleading has had to be cancelled. There were a number of reasons that factored into this decision, and it was not made without a lot of prayer. It was decided that to run the league understaffed was not a good decision. We look forward to coming back next year stronger than before. We apologize and thank all of the families that have become a part of this amazing Ministry. Any forms already submitted are being fully refunded.

Local World Series Ticket Prices Increase and the Ricketts Park
The Connie Mack World Series voted last month to raise ticket prices for the 2013 Connie Mack Work Series. It has been a long time since there has been an increase in ticket prices and the committee realized that there are some needs that must be met to maintain a quality event says General sensitivity to the current economic challenges that face our community, Carpenter said. Without question this event is still very affordable and what we feel is one of the most affordable World Series anywhere with the talent that comes here. Carpenter adds, where else can you go watch such quality baseball fo r$2.50 for a two game general admission seat. A two general admission game seat went up 50 cents and single game general admission stayed the same. Reserve seat prices increased by an average of 23 cents per game or $4.30 for 19 game tournament ticket book.
Furthermore, although Mother Nature has been punishing with the cold recently, construction should be complete by the middle of March on the Phase 1 renovation of Ricketts Park. This Project is really coming together and it would not have been possible without the generosity of fans, coaches, local area businesses, San Juan County and the City of Farmington say s Carpenter. This has been a real team effort to say the least and there are a lot of people to tank for it.
